Gym fear? It happens. Although most of us don’t give much thought to walking through the gym door for our next workout, some of us do actually fear it. I understand. The gym can be an intimidating place when we are feeling less than our best or, perhaps, just starting out on our journey towards fitness as a first time member. We may feel that everyone is looking at us or judging us for our lack of fitness perfection or our perceived clumsiness on the machines, that those we view as perfect 10′s are wondering what in the heck we are doing there looking like we do. You can trust me on this one. They are not. Take a big breath and a tip from Mrs. Roosevelt. Walk through your fear. I promise you’ll be just fine. It happens! My Very Best to You. Ted
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
